To fight poverty locally, invest in well-paying jobs
No anti-poverty initiative or program can be effective if we don't have a strong economy to support it.

First, all the jobs are being sent out of the USA. I see Louise doing nothing about the jobs leaving NYS. Then we have very high taxes in NYS. Thruway tolls, sales taxes and gasoline taxes that are very high that force business out of the state. High property taxes. Then we have a state tax that some states do not have. We have lots of city kids not graduating and can not read or write. Where do they go? The Rochester unemployment rate has dropped to 6.1 percent because many have left the state, are on disibility/welfare or have given up looking for a job. Fake Numbers. The well paying jobs are gone for good Louise.

I won’t sit by while it continues to get undercut by foreign workers.
Louise. That is what you have done since you were elected.

Makes a lot of sense.
Lets feed the rich so that the poor and starving don't die?

High speed rail service? Louise was working on this years ago and got funds. Nothing has happen and no high speed train. It was to create jobs for upstate NY. Louise is a blow hard. Where did the money go? Lots of talk and no action. Thats Louise.

If we have a strong economy we won't need anti poverty programs.

High-speed train does nothing
Increasing minimum wage does nothing.
Raising taxes does nothing
Louise & Lovely do nothing
